Police: Area Teens Face Burglary, Underage Drinking Charges in North Aurora

Three teens were caught earlier this week due in part to an alert resident, police said. Here's more info about the teens, including their pictures and the places they allegedly burglarized.

A watchful male resident led to the arrest of three teens accused of vehicle burglaries, North Aurora Police said.

The man on Sunday discovered the teens going through his vehicle on the 300 block of Magnolia Drive. North Aurora patrol officers responded to the incident at about 1:13 a.m. Sunday.

The teens fled, but the officers searched the area and eventually found all three.

The three teenage suspects are from different towns, but they are all age 17.

Through an initial investigation, officers determined that the offenders burglarized three vehicles: two in the 300 block of Magnolia Drive and one in the 500 block of Cherrywood Lane. This neighborhood is east of Randall Road in North Aurora.

One of the teenagers has an address located about 1.5 miles from where the alleged burglaries took place.

The three offenders and their charges were:

1. Jacob A. Heller, 17, of the 1000 block of Masters Parkway, Aurora. Heller was charged with:

  • 3 counts of burglary (to vehicles), all class 2 felonies
  • 1 count of criminal trespass to vehicle, class A misdemeanor
  • 1 count of consumption of alcohol by a minor, class A misdemeanor

2. Jesse M. Cross, 17, of the 6600 blk. of Double Eagle Drive, Woodridge. Cross was charged with:

  • 3 counts of burglary (to vehicles), all class 2 felonies
  • 1 count of criminal trespass to vehicle, class A misdemeanor

3. Dimitry H. Husen, 17, of the 300 block of Wildwood Drive, North Aurora. Husen was charged with:

  • 3 counts of burglary (to vehicles), all class 2 felonies
  • 1 count of criminal trespass to vehicle, class A misdemeanor
  • 1 count of consumption of alcohol by a minor, class A misdemeanor

All three defendants attended a bond hearing on Dec. 4 in Kane County court and were released on personal recognizance bonds.

"These arrests were made possible because of an alert resident who discovered his vehicle being burglarized and then promptly called police, as well as good police work by the initial responding officers to locate the offenders, who had fled, and then to connect the dots to implicate the offenders in these crimes," said Scott Buziecki, North Aurora Police Lt. "As a result, a burglary spree was stopped and stolen property was recovered for the victims."

All subjects arrested are considered innocent until proven guilty in a court of law.
